This particular smoothie has a few hidden ingredients, like spinach, a banana, Greek yogurt, milk, and honey. My boys didn’t quite know what to think when they found out there was spinach in their smoothies.

You can use fresh or frozen blueberries, totally up to you. I used frozen because cheaper.

I do add the banana and tablespoon of honey to sweeten the smoothie just a bit; however, it’s not overly sweet. The banana and honey really work together to give just the right amount of sweetness but not too much.

The Greek yogurt gives the smoothie more of a creamy factor. You could probably leave it out if you don’t want that tangy yogurt taste… I make smoothies both with and without yogurt, depending on what’s in my fridge at any given time.Blueberry Spinach Smoothie in mason jar with straw on wooden cutting board with fresh blueberries and blue polka dot cloth

Tips for how to make a Blueberry Spinach Smoothie:

Gather your ingredients… You’ll need fresh or frozen blueberries, fresh spinach leaves, a banana, plain Greek yogurt, milk, raw honey, and ice.

  1. If you’re using fresh blueberries, wash your berries. If you’re using frozen blueberries, there’s no prep needed.
  2. Also wash the spinach.
  3. Add your blueberries, spinach leaves, peeled banana, yogurt, milk, and honey to a large blender.
  4. Pulse until everything is mixed well.
  5. Add the ice to the mixture, and pulse again until you reach the desired consistency. If your blender has a smoothie setting, you can use that.
  6. Pour into cups or jars and serve with straws.

This recipe yields about 2 to 4 smoothies, depending on the size smoothie you prefer. We like them on the smaller side, so my 3 boys and I can usually split the recipe between us.

Alternative options or add-ins for your smoothie:

  • If you don’t want regular milk… You can use whatever kind of milk you prefer, whether it’s almond milksoy milk, whatever you choose.
  • Add a handful of strawberries for an extra berry kick.
  • Add flaxseedschia seedshemp seeds, or goji berries to your smoothie.
  • Use a different flavor yogurt… Maybe add a double dose of blueberry with blueberry yogurt.

  1. My youngest who is 3 has turned into my picky eater after he discovered sugar ??‍♀️? he refused to eat most meals so I thought I would try some smoothies since they look like a milkshake & he always loved the Herbalife shakes I used to buy. I made him the blueberry/spinach one this morning….success!! Even my 8 year old loved it! Thank you!

    • Abby, I’ve so been there. In fact, I’m kinda there right now with my 2 year old. I think he’s going to be a little more picky than our older boys. Thank you so much. I’m so glad they enjoyed it!

    • I always have frozen spinach on hand for smoothies. More convenient than fresh, same nutritional value and you can skip the ice. You can’t taste the frozen spinach when combined with the other ingredients, which I count as a bonus.
